Question about Virgin Media Stream Boxes and Virgin TV 360 Mini Boxes

How much slower would these be compared to the regular Virgin TV 360 box in overall usage and fluidity? I am asking as I have bought mini boxes from other TV providers like Sky and they have generally been slower. And also if anyone has ever bought a Virgin Media 360 Mini Box, how much were you charged?

You can't buy Virgin media equipment so any for sale won't work and shouldn't be sold.   As the mini boxes run off coaxial they probably run as fast as a main box.

All V360 boxes are broadcast receivers, so channel reception is direct from the cable & not streamed. Only recordings are streamed from the main box.

You are only allowed one Virgin Stream box per account at present. V360 & Stream cannot be mixed on the same account, so it’s one or the other.

All equipment is rented. VM will not activate anything not obtained directly from them. The serial numbers of the boxes issued to you are linked to your account on despatch from VM.
